James came to know Christ in college when other students shared the gospel with him through Campus Outreach. Since then, James has been passionate about building relationships with others and sharing the Good News with them. He was greatly impacted by the call to make disciples of all nations. James spent one year after college in China with ELIC, and then returned to live and work in Mobile, Alabama, from where he lead a team of college students back to China for a summer. Grace and James became friends during their time at Troy University. Grace grew up in Brazil as a missionary kid. They got married in April, 2017. During their first year of marriage in Mobile, James and Grace have learned about glorifying God in the workplace. They are both passionate about developing others to know Christ, each person’s unique design, and how to engage the world in which they live and work.
